This week’s food is LAVENDER! While I really do love lavender (Just ask my husband, Jim) I don’t eat it very often. Jennifer Tyler Lee suggests making lavender infused drinks – which sound absolutely divine! I have become quite famous on our Annual Cookie Bake Off for making lavender shortbread, which is quite spectacular. Have you tried cooking with lavender?
- Lavender is very relaxing – it can help with sleep and it can relieve headaches
- Lavender oil can be used to treat burns, heal rashes, and as a natural insect repellant
- It is anti-bacterial
- Bees love lavender! This is great because we need more honeybees (they are an at risk species).
